About the Walk

Overview

The highlights are O’Shannassy Weir, 8 km walking beside the historic 1914 open channeled O’Shannassy aqueduct, fern tree gullies, a section where all the trees were chopped off at 50 metres high by a storm and enjoying the Redwood Forest.

The Walk in Detail

To start the walk proceed past the locked gate and follow Road One a short way to an intersection where a track branches off on the right. Follow this track north and northeast to O’Shannassy Weir following signs at the intersections.

The weir is a good place for morning tea. From there follow the Aqueduct track southwest, veering more to the west as you proceed. The track is wide and open, grassy in places, and easy to follow. An open area where another large track crosses north-south could be a good place for lunch.

Continue along the O’Shannassy Aqueduct track until reaching Cement Creek Road. Climb over the locked gate and follow Cement Creek Road to Redwood Forest and the cars.

Getting There

From the Warburton Visitor Centre take the Warburton Highway (B380) and Woods Point Road (C511) east for approx. 11 km to Cement Creek Road on the left. Drive about 1 km along Cement Creek Road to leave cars at the parking area near Redwood Forest (end of walk). Return to Woods Point Road and follow it for 3 km to the O’Shannassy Weir access road where there is an off-road parking area for the start of the walk.
